Max Verstappen says he is disappointed in himself after he crashed out of the Monaco Grand Prix for a second successive season.

Verstappen started from the pit lane after hitting the barriers in qualifying but made steady progress throughout a wet/dry race to challenge for points.

However, the youngster slid wide and clouted the barriers at Massenet, suffering terminal damage to his Red Bull RB12.

"I'm disappointed in myself and disappointed for the team, because they worked very hard to get the car ready and I didn’t give them the result they deserved," he said.

"We were in a good way, we were in the points and to start from the pit lane and end in the points would have been very good, but I learned from this and hopefully we can come back stronger in Canada.

"It was pretty tricky especially in the beginning of the race it was a very slippery track.

"It got better and better, the track was drying, and I think from then on we had great pace and I was overtaking cars, charging through the field and everything felt well.

"Then we put the Softs on and I locked up. Unfortunately I went a bit off-line and of course then you arrive in the wet area and I was a passenger from there on."
